Combatting wage theft

This page is for: 
Employee / workerEmployer

Wage theft is the systematic and deliberate underpayment of wages and entitlements to workers.

To combat wage theft in Western Australia, Private Sector Labour Relations has developed a range of initiatives including education campaigns and resources to increase the communities’ awareness of employment rights and obligations.

New information hubs help WA employers and employees:

  • understand which industrial relations system covers them;
  • find the right information on pay rates, leave entitlements and employment conditions;
  • resolve an alleged underpayment of wages or leave entitlements; and
  • report wage theft anonymously.
